    How do I download a file from OneDrive to the phone? Say, a video I want to see offline?

    Thanks

    Looks like you are out of luck based on this link:

    How to download SkyDrive videos WP 8? - Microsoft Community

    Maybe someone else here has the answer?

    You could download the file to your PC and transfer it to your phone via USB cable.

    Though you cannot download files from the OneDrive app, you can log into OneDrive via Internet Explorer and download from the browser.

    Why have they done like this?
    Are MS stupid?

    The point with filesharing is that you can download/upload from/to anywhere.

    This is madness. The only reasons for this app are to:
    1) Access files
    2) Upload files
    3) download files
    It's very hard to see why one has been omitted

    I do not know if this is posted somewhere else, but link to this page got first in my google search.
    You can download stuff from OneDrive.
    1. in onedrive app: touch and hold document. Document will now have a checkmark.
    2. Choose download icon at bottom of screen, an arrow pointing downward.
    3, Choose where on phone you want it saved.

    This works, of course. I use it all the time. Why are people bashing the app without even trying it?

    Cause the question was asked prior to the update that allowed for direct downloading to phone.

    They didn't always have this?
    I guess that makes sense what with the lacking file manager capabilities before.
    Sorry. :p

    Still - OneDrive doesn't allow the download of folders.

    So if I want to have my foto gallery on the phone I have to download every single folder containing several files. This is ridiculous. Why is there no a "use offline" option as there is on the desktoip version?

    years later, in windows 10, I still cannot download an image from onedrive. There is a download button, but I press it and nothing happens.
    Or I press it to download a picture, and then search the phone for the image, it is nowhere. There is no onedrive folder, nothing.
    Thanks MS

    Ehm it should be in your downloaded pictures folder (photos app > folders) or go to file explorer app and check the downloads folder

    Here goes a late reply.

    No I am 26 years old, I can check that. And no, nothing happens when you press download, or when I long press a file on onedrive.
